Career and Technology Education Allotment

School districts are eligible to receive weighted* funding for eligible full-time equivalent (FTE) students in approved Career and Technology Education (CTE) programs. In addition to this weighted funding, school districts are also eligible to receive $50 for each FTE student enrolled in either:

  • two or more advanced CTE courses for three or more credits, or
  • an advanced CTE course as part of a tech-prep program.

These two funding elements determine a district's total CTE allotment. The allotment applies to:

  • students in grades 9–12 enrolled in CTE programs, and
  • students with disabilities in grades 7–12 enrolled in Career and Technology for the Disabled (CTED) programs. 

* Districts receive 35% more funding for CTE students than for regular students.
